I purchased this platform bed as a simple platform for a memory foam mattress, as I dislike box springs. It arrived in 3 boxes, all on the same day. Putting it together was easy, as the side-rails are already attached. The entire process, when done by 1 person, took about 45 minutes. I put the sides up, figured out the bottom, and then discovered the only bad thing about this bed -- the wood slats and the rails they go into are not very well drilled. The slats didn't line up 100%, and 2 of them stripped the pre-drilled holes in the side rails. They still are holding firm, but not AS firm as I'd like them. Still, that's a minor knock. The height is good for an 11" mattress, I can store stuff under the bed easily, and it's sturdy with no squeaks or creaks. For the price it's a great platform.
